Michy Batshuayi’s trolling of EA Sports has seen the makers of FIFA 18 hand the Chelsea striker a unique 99-rated upgrade card.
The Belgium international was less than impressed to learn that he was given an initial score of 80 by the game makers ahead of the eagerly-anticipated release of their latest offering.

EA Sports responded by telling Batshuayi that they would be willing to reconsider their marks if he continued to find the target.

The 23-year-old was quick to remind them of that fact after netting a hat-trick in a 5-1 Carabao Cup victory for Chelsea over Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.

With Batshuayi clearly not about to let the issue lie, EA Sports bowed to his pressure by producing a special card just for him.

The Chelsea man quickly conceded that his upgrade had been taken too far, as he instantly became the best player on the planet.
In the latest addition of FIFA, Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo is the top-rated player with a score of 94.
